Slight roasty nose with a touch of caramel, pleasant if not amazing. Flavour follows aroma with a fair bit of sweetness and a touch of balancing bitterness. A pleasant, but not a great beer

It was a thank you gift, it poured a dark reddish brown with a light tan head. The aroma is sweet syrupy chocolate. The taste matches, sweet syrupy light chocolate, highly carbonated & a dry finish with nuttiness in the aftertaste. It kind of reminds me of Kyoto Machiya’s dark beer. It is kind of meh, too sweet & cloying in the aftertaste I think. It is pretty sweet. Kind of cool it is brewed in Osaka, my can said it was "Munich type" not sure what they meant...
